Just as the sun didn’t want to play at the beginning of the day, neither did it want to play at the end of the day. Well, there are a number of ways to skin the light cat and artificial works darn well at times. The Golden Gate when there is weather just glows when the sun goes down. That “glow” is what I was photographing so I framed and finished it with that in mind. The point of capture was no more than the D3s with its ISO set to 1600 (out on slippery rocks teaching, not the time or place for a tripod) and 50f1.4AFS at 1.4. It was a real simple click to make.
The finishing is just as easy. The top image I used Nik’s Tonal Contrast because of the break in the overcast. I wanted to boost that. The bottom photograph taken 10min later had no overcast hole but had a glow bouncing of it. It was finished with Nik’s Glamor Glow. Great shooting with new friends make it a great day!
